With Spring League done, Manziel’s wait-and-see game continues


So now we wait. Or, more exactly, continue to wait.

Quarterback Johnny Manziel finished up his two-game stint in The Spring League on Thursday evening, his South team falling 34-17 to the West squad. Manziel’s numbers were, however, much improved over last Saturday’s performance: 10 of 16 passing for 188 yards as well as 27 yards rushing and two touchdowns on the ground.

Manziel is now expected to wait and see if an NFL offer materializes. His CFL rights are owned by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and while the team has a mini-camp scheduled for the end of April, CFL training camps don’t officially open until May 20 with rookies reporting a few days before.

“I’m straight back to working out and doing what I did when I came here,” Manziel said after the game. “Everything else will sort itself out. I’m trying to do what I can do to come back to playing football whatever capacity that is.

“We know when deadlines are. We have another month or so to work out and not worry about anything.”
